I miss the non-patented techs that compelled competitors to innovate batter products.. It is due to that competition that Android and, though I hate to admit it, the first iphone came into being... With this charade of you sue-I sue, people, that is to say, the consumers face the suffering.. I remember when due to Apple's useless lawsuit, the wonderful Galaxy Nexus was banned from the US.. Not to mention Galaxy Tabs. Back in the days, if you made something good, a couple of months, heck, à week later, your competitors would have something even better! That's how technology progressed so much last decade. Until Apple came along.. Now it's virtually the same.. I admit, Google is trying to do its best at a better software.. And so is Microsoft.. But when I look at the origin of the lawsuits, it appears that they have turned themselves into a law firm rather than an innovative company..
